I've played the original at least 3 times the last 12 years. It was a pretty long campaign and I enjoyed it. But you can only play it so many times.
Honestly I'm sick of these remastered games. GTA, yes I'm pointing my fingers at you.

I might pick it up when it's on sale, no way this is worth full price.

Crysis Remastered Adds Nvidia DLSS for Increased Performance

According to Crytek, GeForce RTX owners can expect up to 40% increased performance when enabling Nvidia DLSS on supported graphics cards from the 2000 and 3000 Series...however, the patch changelog (which mentions a great number of bug fixes as listed below) also reveals that there is a known issue where some distant textures can appear blurred with DLSS enabled...

Crysis—“Failing to live up to expectations since November, 2007” Edition.
The game exceeded my expectations when I first played it in 2007, but I digress. This remaster is one of the console versions, not the original version, which is why it's so bad.

I liked the first 60'ish % of the game. If I can ever get it super cheap I'll probably give the remaster a try just to replay those areas. Once the aliens become the predominant enemies, I'll be Audi 5000.

I tend to agree, but I didn't hate it as much as the last half of Far Cry. Crytek in general seems to have trouble with the conclusion of their games.

100% I replayed the original version shortly after remastered came out. Super fun and looks great until the aliens come. About what I remembered from when I last played it 10-11 years ago tbh too. It's pretty short though luckily, I think the campaign took me 6-7 hours.

If I ever play again once I get to the damn core level I'm quitting.

6 months later and they finally add DLSS support?...the Epic store exclusivity seems like a way to get the bugs fixed...by the time it hits Steam it'll be feature complete :)

Still runs like crap. Every area that I drop below 60 fps it is because I am cpu limited and that is with a 9900k...

What GPU you using?
Well that's pretty much irrelevant to what I just said as it's the CPU that is the limiting factor when I'm dropping below 60. I'm using a 2080 TI and it just drops down to 70% usage and the frame rate drops into the 50s. Digital foundry is already discussed that the game is insanely CPU limited in certain spots.

Per-object blur is fine, but camera blur is definitely a big no from me. We're not watching a movie, and I get tired of needing to repeat this constantly.

Yup, thats the conclusion of overclockers 3d

It does help low end cards such as RTX 2060 in lower resolutions

There are places where I drop into the 40s and gpu usage is only at 50%. This garbage is not really improved much from the original 2007 version of the game so the devs have no damn clue how to make proper use of a cpu.

EDIT: Pic below is at 1440p and is only getting 50% gpu usage with 44 fps using a 9900k and 2080 ti.

Yup, this is what I (and many others) were hitting on earlier in the thread after the game came out. The only reason Crysis needed a remaster was for multi-threading support for much better performance, not any graphical upgrades as the game still holds up graphically pretty well today. Yet they doubled down on the remaster and gave us the same exact game with only 1-2 cores/threads being utilized. It completely baffles me and is why I haven't bought the game still.

I'm guessing that no system can currently play this at 4K/60 with the details cranked? OC'd versions of the 11900K + 3900 would be the fastest combo for gaming, right?

The game is too CPU limited to matter so 4K 60 doesn't mean crap because you can't maintain 60 at 720P. People used to argue with me on the original game always talking about they needed a faster video card and never could get through their head that it was irrelevant because you're going to drop into the 50s and 40s all over the place anyway. The developers for this game have no clue how to properly use a CPU and it is an absolute joke that the fastest CPUs on the planet cannot maintain 60. FFS even something like a 4790k should be getting well over 60 FPS in this game.

Wow! Very impressed with DLSS at 4K. 65" QLED Samsung, 120hz + VRR + HDR :happy:. AMAZING is not a good enough word. Finally got a wireless mechanical keyboard for the playroom area. Started another play through after finishing Mafie Definitive Edition (Amazing game in itself). The only problem is any FPS overlay causes flashing on the screen, getting some good smooth, tear free framerates. The Samsung QLED works well once setup with all the clunky menus.

LOL who cares when you can't even maintain 60 FPS due to CPU optimization issues in the game anyway? Perhaps look up a few posts and you will see even a 9900k drops into the freaking 40s in many spots so what good does DLSS do in that situation?

The patch also fixed some of those issues. Not seeing anything going below 60 FPS. The big CPU users in the game settings are "Objects, Vegetation, Shadows". The 5800x is not having any issue in this game.

I don't believe that for a minute and even digital foundry said there are still frame rate drops below 60. even if they wouldn't have mentioned it I would know there's no way possible because your CPU is most certainly not 50% faster than a 9900k.

Believe what you want since you just know without testing. Settings have a huge factor. DLSS, 4K, 5800x, 3090 works well, plays great, looks great.

Maybe I was misunderstanding you. So you're saying you did reduce some of the CPU heavy settings? If so then yeah I guess 60 FPS would not be an issue but if you're talking about running max settings then I know there's no way you can keep 60 FPS in the very CPU intensive parts of the game.

Yes.

Well after flashing 3090 bios and firmware and switching on Rebar in the motherboard bios, Rebar is on, Crysis Remaster crashes when trying to load a saved/checkpoint. Boo Hoo. Will have to tackle that later and try with that setting off.
